waters? i got to ask why it was when he called the massive deficit we have un-american. i understand. the deficit spending has been outrageous under republicans and democrats. but why when thaws with the case why did he spend $90 billion sending money to green companies, contributors of his. we heard what he had to say or not say. i think we boil it down to this. more recently he said, look, you can't change washington from the inside. you have to change washington from the outside. we'll, we're going to give him that chance on november 6. [cheers and applause] now, there were a couple of place where is we agreed. we agreed, for instance, that we would take this country in very different directions. and he points out -- well, actually it was the vice president that blurted out the truth that they're planning on raising the taxes with $2 trillion. actually it's more like $3 trillion. there's no secret that the spending and the interest that they amassed by virtue of their spending and it's going to cause them to raise taxes on the middle-class. i make this commitment to you, under no
